Video: The Opening of a Bitcoin-Funded Well in Kenya


This is part 3 in a series about the BitGive Foundation’s work in Kenya. Read an intro or a picture essay about this task.

In 2014, the BitGive Foundation led a campaign in the Bitcoin neighborhood to raise $ 10,000 in Bitcoin to fund a water well in sub-Saharan Africa with The Water Project. The Bitcoin neighborhood rallied and went beyond the objective, raising more than $ 11,000. The water well recently was finished in the western area of Kakamega, Kenya, and the BitGive Foundation existed to witness the neighborhood event. They wished to capture the magic on film, and this brief video acts as an initial intro to a longer video story coming out later this year. See how Bitcoin helped bring clean, safe water to the Shisango Girls School and more than 500 individuals. Many thanks to all the donors who took part in the fundraising campaign and to BitPesa and LibraTax for sponsoring the check out to Kenya and the video production.
